minerals and vitamins make up less than 1% of you.
Energy Nutrients: Carbohydrates, Lipids and ProteinsCarbohydrates, lipids, and proteins are organic (carbon-containing) compounds and are used by your body as a source of energy, or kilocalories. They are, therefore, often referred to as the...
foods that contain them. Carbohydrates are some of the mostabundantmolecules in living organisms. They play a major role as foodmolecules in the cell, being broken down to produce energy. Carbohydrates can also be converted into glucose, the form of sugar that is s transported and used by the...

biomolecules is any molecule that is produced by a living organism, including large macromolecules such as proteins, polysaccharides, lipids...
• There are four categories of large biologicalmolecules:
– proteins, and
– nucleic acids.
Large biological Functions
Why are there so many possible types of organic compounds?
because each C atom can make 4 covalent bonds
What are the classes of the large biologicalmolecules?
carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids
What are polymers?
They're large molecules made of...
, such as carbohydrate or lipid derivatives, these occur at the chaperone site. Eventually, mRNA molecules are broken down into nucleotides by cytoplasmic enzymes.
Mitochondrial DNA does not have introns. Mitochondria each have the complete set of machinery to produce its own proteins, the...
components of this food item? If so, list these. If not, say so.
A. How much of yourfood item is water? Provide one reason why water is important for life.
B. State the highest category of biologicalmolecule in yourfood - Carbohydrates, Lipids, or Proteins. Describe the structure of...
Biological macromolecules are defined as large molecules made up of smaller organic molecules. There are four classes of macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. In this lab, you will learn about the first three, nucleic acids will be covered in a later lab...
dissolved in water produces hydroxyle anion (OH-) as the only negative ion. The mostabundant base we have in our body is NaOH sodium hydroxide.
Organic compound: defined as the stuff our cells are made up of.
Molecular formula known as CH4 is regarded as an organic molecule.
nonpolar and hydrophobic, glucose with several -OH groups is actually hydrophilic
Biologicalmolecules of cells
Biologicalmolecules are organic molecules in cells grouped into only four catagories
Certain biologicalmolecules in cells are composed of...

The nutrients we need are divided into 6 major categories:
Known as Starches, Sugars and Fibers
Carbohydrate has 4 kcals for each gram
2. Fat (Lipids)
Known as Triglycerides, Phospholipids and Sterols
(Fats and Oils)
fat has 9 kcals per gram
is ten fold
-difference in the concentration of H+ in pH3 and pH5 is 100 fold
-pH7 is neutral
-below 7 is an acid
-above 7 is a base
-as pH decreases by 1 unit, H+ concentration increases ten fold
5. Nucleic Acids...

The Role of Nutrition in your Health
Nutrition is the science of food and how food affects your body and your health. The six -essential nutrients found in the foods you eat are carbohydrates, fats, proteins...
Biochemistry: categories of organic compounds
There are four major compounds that compose the human body. It is impossible that anything living on earth today can live out these organic compounds. Those compounds are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleotides. Each...
Here are your goals for this lesson:
